A luxury double room & bathroom along with a very cosy shared lounge & kitchen - we found this more than worth every zloty. The personell at the reception were all friendly and helpful 24 hrs a day - and fluently speaking English, which is not inevitable in Warsaw. Our room & the lounge & kitchen facilities were very well cleaned every day, many thanks for this!! So; all-in-one, we were absolutely delighted - for this price everything was wonderful, really it was more than we expected. The location was perfect, with a short walk to the Centre & the Old town + many interesting places (concert halls, museums, parks & the river) - and surrounded with very good restaurants. Best regards & thanks, Brynja & Kari (from Iceland, who stayed at Chmielna for 12 days in August 2014).
We warn those, who might be interested and have bad feet, of the staircases !! - both in the (very ugly) stairway up to the reception and the one in the guesthouse itself = the introduction of this (and the complete lack of elevators) is missing in the description of Chmielna. We did not know about this until well after we had booked the room. This was not a problem for us though, because - although well over 60, both of us, - we possess very good physical health.
